Ear disease can be prevented and treated.

We host hearing clinics and visit schools.

The impacts of poor hearing health can be lifelong, with school readiness, communication skills, learning abilities and educational outcomes all being affected.

Hearing Health Clinics are carried out within our Toowoomba Mary St, Hub and Warwick Clinics, as well as a majority of the schools within our area. We are able to offer Hearing Screenings to adults and children from the age of 3 years and up.

The Hearing Health Screening consists of three parts:

inner-ear-3

1. Otoscopy
– what your ear looks like.

inner-ear-2

2. Tympanometry
– tests how good your middle  ear function is.

inner-ear

3. Audiometry
– how well you can hear.

Once the Hearing Report is completed, the Screener determines the course of action that will be required.

If the patient has been seen twice and failed their hearing test – the Hearing Screener can refer the patient to Australian Hearing. Alternatively, the Hearing Screener may send a referral back to their regular GP with a recommendation of further investigation (i.e. referral to ENT Specialist).

We endeavour to visit the schools in our area, on a regular basis. Carbal liaises with parents through the schools and gains permission prior to screening.

If students require follow-up from the initial screening, the Hearing Screener will organise a time to go back to the school, or we welcome them to follow-up for another hearing screen at our Clinics. 

It is recommended that if any follow-up services are required, that you visit your Doctor.
